What is the bike getting for Christmas?

I was doing a little last minute Christmas shopping. It got me thinking, who is getting their bike something for Christmas? Mine will be getting that new tube it has been asking for for two months. And maybe some new bars.

not mine... but the wife's bike is getting a new saddle and lights, and the boy's bike is getting tubes and a good once-over.

What are the wheels getting for Christmas?
My set of Loop wheels just arrived from England Friday evening. Now I'll be looking for a bike to put them on. I want a full sized mountain bike host, like my other mini-velo MTB, so going to be looking at rigid frame SS's...

I just bought my new Cross Check last weekend, so in effect it was a Christmas present to myself.
But for the bike itself, I ordered new pedals, Shimano A530s



To go with the pedals, I ordered my first pair of bike shoes: Specialized Tahoe



And I've replaced the generic bottle cages with two of these

Almost everything.

I'm rebuilding the old Porsche mountain bike frame that I've had hanging in my workshop for several years. Components are mostly period correct but definitely not OEM matching.

The kids got new bells and head & tail lights. The wife is getting a pair of CF bottle cages to go on her CF bike. I had a few items on my wish list for the new Lynskey. I know that my sister in law got me the SKS longboards I wanted (the package from Amazon was so odd, that my wife opened it, and still couldn't ID the contents, and there was no way to wrap them. I have a rear rack,trunk bag and LizardSkins DSP tape on the list as well. We'll see what is in all those packages under the tree on Wednesday.

New chain (SRAM 850), bigger battery pack (6600 mAh), Eyewear mirror. It seems kind of stingy, maybe I'll lube the hubs and replace the cables as a special treat.

My bike got a Feedback Sports Pro Elite repair stand. It was supposed to be a surprise but the box showed up at the front door on my work-from-home day. Oops!
The bike is very happy!

I might get some grips for the dirt bike and a chainwheel and/or brake pads for the bmx, but it would be as a late Xmas gift. If not for Xmas, then for Bday probably.

My bike is getting a Park Tool PCS-10 Bike Repair Stand from my wife. Earlier this week I bought a Park Tool Master Chain Link tool, 4th Hand Cable Stretcher and a Park Tool Cable Cutter.

Unfortunately, my bike is getting a heavier engine with no more power than the usual one. Due to crappy weather (ice/snow/sleet) and chaos at work, I rode only two days between Thanksgiving and yesterday. Typically, I ride off the Thanksgiving weight gain before the Christmas weight gain hits. No such luck this time around.

Very cool. Just remember: clip out while you're slowing down, not after you've stopped.

As for me, I'm not buying a bike or anything for my current stable this season. My plan for 2014 is to ride what I've got, and not spend money on bike parts for the sake of buying things.

...that is, after the Madison Swap Meet in January.

My Xtracycle got new Surly Dummy bags, and a new battery for the Down Low Glow. Probably for its'/her birthday it/she will get a new battery for the E-assist.
